Are you someone who prefers winding up the day with a hot cup of green tea?
Here’s all you need to know about it!
Why should you drink green tea?
Extracted from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant, Green tea is loaded with the goodness of antioxidants and nutrients, which help in relaxing the nerves, boosts brain functioning and reduces cell damage caused due to the presence of free radicals.
The presence of a compound called Catechins in Green tea includes antioxidants like epigallocatechin gallate (EGCGC) and epigallocatechin (EGC). Moreover, the presence of Theanine, an Amino acid, works as a nerve relaxant which improves brain health, boosts memory, reduces stress and induces sleep.
Is it safe to drink green tea at bed time?
What’s the right time to drink Green tea has been a big question! But there’s not much evidence to back the right time of drinking Green tea. However, the slight portion of caffeine in Green tea can impact sleep and cause insomnia by increasing the alertness of the brain. Apart from that, drinking more fluid before sleep can also increase the discomfort and frequent trips to the washroom. Thus, it is essential to consume it in moderation and reduce the quantity of drinking Green tea right before bed or drink it atleast 2-3 hours before bed time.
How much green tea should you drink?
According to experts, drinking 2-3 cups of Green tea can be enough to reap the benefits. But drinking too much of it can also pose some side effects such as nausea, insomnia and anemia to name a few. So, make sure you drink your cup of this stress-buster a few hours before and boost your health.
